Showbiz Kids: The Steely Dan Story review

Showbiz Kids: The Steely Dan Story review

Showbiz Kids: The Steely Dan Story is a fantastic collection of their  music that contains most of their best material through their 1980 album Gaucho.  This compilation goes beyond the radio hits and contains many great songs that didn't make the airways such as "Only a Fool Would Say That" from Can't Buy a Thrill, and "Any Major Dude Will Tell You" from Pretzel Logic.   Showbiz Kids: The Steely Dan Story includes two great songs, "Here at the Western World," and "FM,"  that were not on their studio albums, but released on other previous compilations.  Some songs that I would have included if I choose the material are compositions that don't necessarily sound like a typical Steely Dan Song. Such as their attempt at Waltz with "East St. Louis Toodle-oo,"  and the lone song that Jim Hodder sung, "Midnight Cruiser."  

Showbiz Kids: The Steely Dan Story is a fairly comprehensive snapshot of their career.  Barry Small
